      Oh, and maybe my geography is weak, but just what would be on the "northeast coast" of British Columbia? Would that be like the "northeast coast of Oregon"?


    • erepsekahs

      Yes, I thought that was a scream too.....and the assertion that British Columbia was established and built by the U.S. mining conglomerate Phelps-Dodge.

      So, what was found that was "as stunning as it is eerie"? Was it that "after the last person left ... it was vacant"? That doesn't seem stunning as much as it seems obvious.

    who pays the electric bill, who cuts the grass, keeps the spiders and their webs knocked down. Why isn't the government utilizing this property. Surely Canada has homeless families. Hell house released criminals no one wants as a neighbor. What a waste.

    The town is up for sale and that's why the grass is kept up as everything else is. There was a documentary on the CBC a couple of years ago.

    no way somone is cutting all the grass perfectly at every home and business in that town just to sit abandoned. makes no sense.

  • Chad Jones

    Google Amax of Canada and you will find the real answers. They're just trying to get views and re-direct you to join their travel site. Who ever had the Direct TV dish on their house in 82 was why ahead of the curve. You might want to take better pictures out of a magazine.

    This would be a perfect town to make a TVserie. The actors could stay in the apartments and there would be a complete town to film in. A film series from the 80's perhaps?

    The north east coast of British Columbia? There is no coast in the North east of British Columbia. That would be the border with another Canadian Province-Alberta. 1:16-British Columbia wasn't built by the mining company, the town was. Anybody fact checking these?

    I keep forgetting that your vids are complete BS. If no one is living there then who put up the small satellite dish on the house at 3:42? They didn't even start making those until the early nineties...definitely not in 1982.

    1:10, "British Columbia was founded and built by the U.S. mining conglomerate Phelps-Dodge in 1979."  Need I quote more?  British Columbia, commonly known as B.C., is the Westernmost province of Canada, it is not a town founded and built be the U.S. mining conglomerate Phelps-Dodge. What an absolutely inane thing to write.  Look at that! someone is actually mowing all the lawns and providing electricity to feed the fluorescent lighting in the library.  Indeed it is quite extraordinary. Ahem.

    Okay gang, did a little research on the web from a local newspaper---the mining industry crashed in 82, so the town folk abandoned the town-no work. There are 2 caretakers left on the property that mow the lawns and take care of stuff. The electric has been left on for the tourists/visitors who come see the town, supplied by a local hydro-plant.
    Some local businessmen are trying to get a Liquid Natural Gas station put there to put the town back to use.

    In 2004, the ghost town was bought by Indian-American businessman Krishnan Suthanthiran for $5.7 million; he has spent $2 million maintaining the town.[2] In the end, he would have spent over $20 million more to fully update the town. He has also since closed the town to the public.[3]

    In an effort to revitalize the ghost town, Kitsault has been proposed as a location for a liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal site for the export of natural gas from northwestern British Columbia. LNG pipeline routing to Kitsault has been proposed.[4]
